If you're a couple who loves adventure, great food, and a cool climate, Benguet should be your destination wedding choice. This landlocked province has plenty of things to offer to make your wedding truly memorable and romantic.

Here are 5 reasons why Benguet should be your wedding venue:

1. Cool weather and fresh air

This means you and your guests can relax and enjoy during the preparation and ceremony because you are more comfortable. You won't be endlessly wiping your sweat or finding ways to keep cool.

2. Fresh Vegetables and Fruits

Where else can you find the freshest, juiciest, and cheapest vegetables and fruits than in the salad bowl of the Philippines?

Benguet is the main source of highland vegetables in the country so if your family and friends are health buffs, a menu filled with plenty of green options wouldn't be a problem.

3. Romantic Outdoor and Garden Venues

Do you want to get married in a grassy garden surrounded by flowers? Or perhaps a rustic venue surrounded by pine trees? You can definitely find that in Benguet. If you prefer open venues, there are gardens and landscaped mountains available. You can also find closed venues like pavilions and gymnasiums.
